's ed lavandera is in aurora for us. ed, what do we know about this package? >> reporter: well, we're still trying to gather information on what exactly is inside that package, wolf. but as you mentioned that law enforcement official telling cnn that on monday police and fbi discovered a package that was apparent apparently sent by james holmes, the 24-year-old suspected gunman. now it's unclear obviously if this package was indeed sent by him, it was clearly sent before he was taken into custody. it arrived at some point on monday at the university mail room. we've also been told by hospital officials over the last couple of days this is something we've been monitoring for some time that there were two packages that were suspicious and were being looked into, one found in the mail room and also one that was actually delivered to a university professor. so we've been trying to nail down more information on this. and we'll continue to do so, wolf. >> what's the university of colorado saying about all of this, ed? >> reporter: well, now that the details have come out that this packag

, sent each of us a letter with a "time" magazine cover by joel kind entitled "how to die." this article is jarring to many because it's an issue that most would rather not confront. as a result, there's a great deal of unnecessary pain, confusion and suffering. it masks one of the most important issues in health care which, despite the manufactured controversy over death panels, is a rare sweet spot in the health care debate. it can improve the quality of life, in some cases length of life, and most important, we can help people understand their circumstances and get the care that they want. if this happens, the cost of health care will go down even as satisfaction and quality goes up. for most americans, the protocols followed by almost every hopped and practitioner will be to give the maximum amount of the most aggressive care in end of life situation, especially if patients have the money or insurance, they will be hooked up in their final stages of life to be resuscitated, cracking their ribs, massaging hearts. there will be tubes inserted, chemicals will be pumped, defibrillators w

't need a special council. we're going to have a couple of u.s. attorneys, one from d.c. and one from maryland, they're going to investigate which some say is political. clearly they work for the attorney general that works for the president. anyway, we'll play you -- we'll give you both the quotation. here first is senator feinstein on monday essentially taking aim at the white house for spilling the political beans, the secret beans. >> i think the white house has to understand that some of this is coming from its ranks. i don't know specifically where. but they're, i think, they have to begin to understand that and do something about it. >> and then up next, she again another statement just yesterday and we have this one for you, too. i stated that i did not believe the president leaked classified information. i shouldn't have speculated beyond that because of the fact of the matter is i don't know the source of the leaks. but, you know, this really brings up the issue of transparency as well which is something that the obama administration has promised from day one and if you'll
on average from approximately $55,000 to $50,000. food stamp use, food stamp recipients have increased from 32 million recipients when this administration started in office to 46 million food stamp recipients today. home values have dropped on average from $169,000 to $148,000. the economic growth, economic growth in this recovery is the weakest of any recovery since world war ii. last quarter, our growth was 1.9% versus the prior quarter, 1.9%. job creation last month, 80,000 jobs, but it takes 150,000 jobs gaining every month just to hold even with our population growth, just to start reducing that 8.2% unemployment rate. so the facts, those are the facts. they speak for themselves. you can draw your own conclusion. the president's approach to our economy is making it worse. his fallure to join with us in extending the current tax rates and engage in pro-growth tax reform rather than raising taxes is sitting on our economy like a big, wet blanket. but we can change that. we can change that right now. we do it by extending the current tax rates, the tax rates that have been in effect for t

're used to seeing. it's how low bonds have gone in yield and how high they've gone in price. i have never seen anything like this. 31 years, we haven't seen anything like it. eaton bottomed yesterday. you simply discovered the terrific industrial is in stronger shape than it should be and it's got a much better yield than treasuries. why not wait? meanwhile, many of the oils share that characteristic. yielding 4%, conoco or incana or kinder morgan partners. you can accept you're going to lose a little money, but not a lot of money. these companies pay you to wait. you're betting europe is not suicidal when you buy something with a 4% yield and they'll come up with a solution eventually for the dissolution of one of the largest and most important markets on earth, spain. plus, it's pretty clear we may actually have a bottom in natural gas. as it's held the $2 level and bounced to a $3 number, thanks to a huge number of shut-ins and a dramatic decline in drilling. that's what a bottom looks like. supply no longer is exceeding demand. same goes for the high yielding pharma stocks. one of the
